‘Hello Sunshine’ Matchbook

4/8/22 Honorable Addict at Addicted to Stamps and More!
4/12/22 Top 5 at Try It On Tuesday!

Hi friends! Happy Fri-YAY to all you working people! Hope you have something fun planned this weekend! The weather here is glorious – we started opening windows last week (a few hours at a time each day), and the cats absolutely love laying on the window sills watching everything going on in the ‘hood! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I scored a top pick honor over at Cut It Up Challenges last month and was invited by the lovely Evelyn to guest design, so here I am! I created this adorable Matchbook for Challenge #248 – Spring! I’m addicted to these little things and have acquired quite a few now, so I just need to find the time to make them! ;)

I cut the base from a wood plank paper in the P13 Always and Forever 6×8 designer paper pack, the awning and window frames from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Hot Fudge cardstock, and the rest of the elements from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock which I colored with alcohol markers. Then the fun began… I LOVE assembling these!

Here are some angled shots.

And one more peek with the teeny tiny envelope… another adorable Matchbook completed! I have quite a few more planned, so stay tuned! I think I’m an addict, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. Wow! Your little matchbook design is just as cute as can be! I adore all of the tiny little details in it and how you can fold it into an envelope too! I can’t wait to see more of them! P.S. I sure wish I could open up some windows, but it’s still a tad bit cold yet.
